We welcome Utu Lautturi to our label with a great live release.
Feeding off the endless magical light of the northern midsummer Utu Lautturi made his debut live performance in 2013 to a small group of people gathered at Houseforest.
The session served as both an experimental musical ritual as well as a cleansing invocation and release of some archetypical forces haunting the man since childhood.
The recording is mixed exclusively for a focused listening experience. Uninterrupted surroundings and headphones are recommended.
The instrumentation is improvised and sound manipulation performed live. All sounds performed, recorded, manipulated and engineered by Utu Lautturi.
A special thank you and extra respect are due to the crew at Houseforest for their undying interest in fresh sound and their never ending search for new musical experiences.
Live video footage of the full performance edited by Utu Lautturi can be viewed from his You Tube
More information on the instruments/sounds used in the session can be found from Utu Lautturi's Soundcloud
In an attempt to transform flesh into sound Utu Lautturi was born.
To force the shattered shards of a broken mind into audible reflective surfaces and summon guides in the endeavor of hermetic re-creation.
Produced by whatever means, when and wherever, unrestrained by genre or method, Utu Lautturi’s sounds are a second skin.
All of his work relies on improvisation, snipping shadows off moments gone and compiling them again into something vaguely familiar.
Utu hails from Finland and dedicates all of his work to ever-inspiring Nordic nature.
